Florence Nightingale is my hero

Nursing is an art:  and if it is to be made an art, it requires an exclusive devotion as hard a preparation as any painter's or sculptor's work; for what is the having to do with dead canvas or dead marble, compared with having to do with the living body, the temple of God's spirit?  It is one of the Fine Arts:  I had almost said, the finest of Fine Arts. 
~Florence Nightingale, mother of modern nursing

I may not have the most glamorous job, but I do have the best job.  
Happy Nurse's Week to all my fellow nurses out there! :)
